We wanted a warm, relaxing beach holiday and we got one. Easily the best we have been on. The lodge is right on a beach of soft white coral sand, fringed by palm trees. The rooms combine simplicity with good taste and comfort. The sea is clean and warm to swim in at high tide and the swimming pool is right outside the rooms.
We spent most of our seven days swimming, reading, eating fabulous meals and wondering how we would be able to leave. One day we took a trip from a nearby dive centre out to the reef for snorkelling and watching dolphins - easily arranged from the lodge.
The site has been cleverly designed to give the feeling that it is miles from anywhere and the nearby village never intruded. In fact, it was an asset to be able to watch local fishermen and seaweed collectors at work out on the reef. Local people are friendly and there is absolutely no hassle.
Gloria and Thomas are perfect hosts and the staff are friendly and efficient. Great chef!
I thoroughly recommend this lodge and would love to go back.
